Abstract

This paper provides a compact overview of Harmony, an Earth Explorer 10 mission candidate dedicated to the observation of dynamic deformations of ice, solid earth and ocean surfaces. Harmony consists of two receive-only small Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) satellites using Sentinel-1D as illuminator, which will alternate close formation phases, dedicated to single-pass cross-track interferometry, with StereoSAR phases dedicated to the study of ocean surface motion and 3-D land surface deformations.
